• 3 steps to avoid using harsh cleaning chemicals

    3 steps to avoid using harsh cleaning chemicals

    As you’re aware by looking at the products on the shelves, there is a rising trend of cleaning your home with a more natural cleaner and less of a harsh chemical… and we’re all for that! It’s not only better for the environment but your body as well! In this article, we will focus on glass surfaces, as that is what makes our hearts sing a little bit more here at Eurocoat.

    According to us, the key to avoiding the use of harsh chemicals is to avoid the actual need for them altogether! There’s a number of things you can do to achieve this and we have listed our top ones for you;

    1. Reset

    If your glass surface is brand new, you’re lucky enough to skip this step.

    If your shower, balustrade, splashback or windows already have a dirt build-up or/and watermarks, our best advice is to get rid of them as soon as possible. With a good glass rejuvenator and the right tools, the dirt can be removed and the glass will look like new again and will be so much easier to keep clean from that point. For DIY we recommend our Eurocoat Rejuvenator and Non-Abrasive Scour Pads. The rejuvenator is environmentally safe, yet very efficient. For heavy dirt build-up, we recommend calling one of our Approved Applicators for the best result.

    2. Give yourself the best conditions possible

    When we are looking at Google searches, we see more people are searching on ‘how to get rid of existing dirt’, rather than how to prevent it from the start. We sometimes feel that this is our core mission, to educate people about how much easier your cleaning (life) will be if you protect your glass surfaces from the beginning (or after a restoration)! Eurocoat Glass Premium is based on German engineered nano-technology that forms a clear skin over the surface, preventing dirt from adhering to the surface. This means dirt particles will sit “on top” of the surface rather than entering into the pores of the glass… thus, being super easy to clean with a simple wipe-off with a microfiber cloth and mild detergent.

    One treatment can last up to 5 years on restore glass (10 years on new glass), so the time and money you’ll invest in doing that are well worth it.

    3. Stay on top

    Whether your glass panels are treated with Eurocoat Glass Premium or not, a healthy maintenance routine is important to maintain the condition of the glass. Using a shower as an example, we recommend a daily squeegee after use and a weekly wipe down with a microfiber cloth and mild detergent.

    For an untreated surface, it’s likely that dirt will start to build up over time and that eventually scrubbing will be needed. If that happens, use Eurocoat Rejuvenator and non-abrasive scourer pads to get rid of it.

    A treated surface is not maintenance free but the effort is minimal. Our trick to not let the maintenance slip away but to make it super easy for you to maintain. In the shower, put some body soap on a scrubbing glove - a quick wipe down and a rinse and you’re done. (With the perk of having a 1 minute longer nice warm shower while doing it.)  If life gets busy and you would end up with a dirt build-up on your treated surface, you can still use Eurocoat Rejuvenator and non-abrasive pads for a quick rub, without damaging the coating.

    Summary; Avoiding the need for harsh chemicals from the beginning, is definitely the best way to go. Treating your glass panels with Eurocoat Glass Premium will not only drastically decrease the effort to keep the surface clean, but it will also leave the surface looking like brand new for many years to come.

  • Reduce your cleaning time by up to 90%

    Reduce your cleaning time by up to 90%

    Yes, it’s possible to have a sparkling clean glass and still have time left over for other things!

    It doesn’t matter if you’re looking to reduce cleaning time at home or on your Commercial property… it will save you time and money.

    Maintaining your glass surfaces with Eurocoat Glass Protection products has never been so easy!

    An untreated glass panel can be a real struggle to a) get clean and b) to keep clean! Dirt, fat and grime get stuck into the tiny pores of the glass. This leaves unsightly watermarks etched into your glass leaving the glass looking cloudy in appearance… We’re sure you know this well, the tiring feeling of being on your knees scrubbing the shower glass with harsh ‘gas like’ chemicals, just to repeat the same cleaning process a week or two later!

    Most people think that a glass surface is naturally perfectly smooth, but looking in a microscope, you can see “rafts and valleys” where dirt particles will get stuck. Eurocoat Glass Protection forms an optically clear skin on the surface, achieving a perfect smoothness, preventing dirt particles to adhere. Instead, the dirt will sit “on top” of the glass and will easily be rinsed off with water and a soft cloth.

    Because our product stops dirt penetrating into the glass pores, it also protects your glass from etching (water marks) caused by acid rain, irrigation systems or salt water. Untreated glass can start to look cloudy already a few months to a year if left untreated! Professionals can restore glass up to 90% but treating the glass before the damage, is a great way to protect your investment, keeping it looking like new for years to come.

    So how will your cleaning routine look like after you have treated your surface? Remember our treatment is LOW maintenance not NO maintenance, but cleaning will be kept to a minimum still leaving the glass looking mint. You can forget scrubbing with harsh chemicals and replace that with a simple wipe off with a mild detergent and microfiber cloth. Cleaning a shower will be done in a matter of minutes! We have listed our recommended maintenance plans below for different applications:

    • Showers: Squeegee off the water from the glass once a day or after each shower. (Not essential, but helps with your weekly clean). Once a week, wipe off with a microfiber cloth and mild detergent. Rinse and squeegee off for a perfect result.
    • Balustrade: If your glass is located by a swimming pool (chorine/saltwater) or an irrigation system, we recommend a regular hose down after each use. Once a month wipe off with a microfiber cloth with mild detergent. Rinse and squeegee off for a perfect result.
    • Splashback: We recommend an easy clean with soapy water once a week (or as often as needed) to keep it looking brand new.
    • Marine: A hose down after each outing is recommended. Some boat owners might also like to squeegee off any access water to maintain the finish.

    What if I don’t follow this maintenance plan or if the specific conditions would lead to a heavy dirt build up? While this in some cases can shorten the lifetime of the product, in many cases it’s fine and you can easily get rid of the dirt build up by using our non-abrasive scourer pad and a mild detergent to lightly scrub it off.

    Eurocoat Glass Protection is excellent for all smooth glass panels such as showers, marine and automotive windshields, balustrades, splashbacks and windows. Our products are of the highest quality and are suitable for commercial applications. Can you even imagine how much time you could save if you had 100 showers to clean in a day!?

  • DIY Application or Leave It to the Professionals?

    We sometimes get asked by customers if they can apply Eurocoat Surface Protection Products themselves or if they need an Approved Applicator to do it for them. In this article we’re shedding some light on this common question!

    What do you want to treat?

    The first question you have to ask yourself is what do you want to treat? A shower, 100m2 balustrade, windows, splashback or your car/boat windshield? What is the access to the surface? Would you need a ladder, scaffolding or cherry picker to reach the surface? Do you have access to the equipment and the knowledge, confidence (and in some cases the qualification) to use it? How much time are you willing to spend?

    What is the condition of your surface?

    Is it brand new or does it have years of wear and tear such as water marks, dirt build up or etching from acid rain or salt water? Generally, if the surface is heavily damaged, we’d recommend to get an Approved Applicator to do the job. Their experience and right tools can make the world of difference.

    What is your budget?

    What investment are you willing to make in your glass surfaces? We know by experience that treating glass surfaces will prolong the life of the surface considerably, which in the end, will save you money, as you don’t have to replace it to keep it looking good! Especially external surfaces in proximity by the sea. Irrigation systems or shower glass tend to start looking opaque due to water etching and dirt build up pretty quickly. DIY will keep your overall costs down and we provide both written and video instructions to help you on the way.

    How important is the finish and how long do you want the result to last?

    It’s no secret, the result really is dependent on the application technique. While most people will be able to take this task on themselves and be happy with the end result, an Approved Applicator will make sure the glass is well cleaned and restored by removing any unwanted water marks BEFORE it is treated.  Another added advantage of getting this applied by and an Approved Applicator is the warranty, (which can range from three to ten years depending on the type of surface and how/where it’s used).

    When should I treat my glass surface?

    NOW! We’re not just saying this to impose our products on you… If you have a brand-new surface, treat it at once to both avoid the need of restoring the glass but also to keep that perfect finish. Used glass can be restored by up to 80% (depending on the damage levels). So, the longer you wait, the “worse” the result can be. Saying that, you’ll be surprised of how amazing a restored glass can look. Our Approved Applicators have restored shower glass over 10 years old, and they look like new again.

    Well, you get it…. don’t wait. But if you have waited, it’s still worth it!

    This pool balustrade was installed 4 months ago and already showed bad signs of damage (left).  Our Approved Applicators did a great job restoring the glass (right), and now looking like new again with Eurocoat Glass Premium treatment.

    How are your general handy-(wo)man skills?

    Are you polishing your car for fun or building a new bookshelf yourself because you don’t like the ones that are on sale? Cleaning is your passion and you happily scrub the oven away? You might even enjoy going from surface to surface in your home making sure the glass looks sparkling clean for years to come! (Consider the 250ml bottle of Glass Premium that covers up to 50m2 of surfaces if you know you can’t stop once started)

    To be honest, some of us are just not interested in doing it ourselves or we know that we’re better at writing research papers/software code, baking banana bread, we just prefer having a coffee at our favorite café or we simply don’t have any more time for DIY projects (life admin, we get it). Then, our friendly Approved Applicators are here for you.

    What is an Approved Applicator?

    Last, we’re using the term as you would already know what an Approved Applicator is but let’s explain this too. It’s a person who have done training with the Eurocoat specialists and have ongoing support with Eurocoat to ensure they have the right knowledge and application technique to provide a high-quality service for their customers in the future.
